Karuthavanlaan Galeejaam: Full on energetic Kuthu

Singer: Anirudh Ravichander Music: Anirudh Ravichander

Lyrics: Vivega
Presenting the winning streak of Anirudh and Sivakarthikeyan; this time Anirudh goes simply on an energetic local folk mode. With funky lyrical all around that rhymes around with “Thakkali” , “Vavvalu” and so on, the song should hit the crowd well enough.

The tune is something we have heard over and over in many folk numbers over the years, yet a racy thara dapanguthu never goes down on a boring note. Anirudh’s vocal is the big winner of this single that has an underlying electric vibe and a chorus to support his stand on Chennai and its Madrasism. The track will certainly have some foot tapping kuthu dance and knowing Siva’s talent as a dancer there is a lot in store indeed.

Iraiva- A soulful rock song!

Album: Velaikkaran  Composer: Anirudh Ravichander

Voices: Anirudh Ravichander, Jonita Gandhi

Music heart-throb Anirudh Ravichander had announced a special '2 in 1' second single 'Iraiva' for the much anticipated 'Velaikkaran' starring Sivakarthikeyan in the lead role. The movie's first number Karuthavanlaam Galeejaam impressed listeners with its energy. 'Iraiva' on the other hand was touted to have two emotions intertwined namely life and emotion.

'Iraiva' is the perfect marriage of scintillating soul music and exploding rock. And Anirudh seems to have gifted what he promised in this soul-shaking number. The song starts off with the gentle strumming of guitars as Anirudh’s vocalizations weaves magic with trance inducing inflections. We begin to gel and sympathize with the singer’s pleading lines and-

Bang! We’re taken aback with rock-styled hardcore shout-outs exploding. Anirudh's portions is low-laying initially and the next instant transforms into the song’s joie-de-vivre. We’re not complaining though, but happy as it might be what gives the song its versatility.

As electric guitars ream in on your ear drums, surprisingly a no-nonsense transition leaves you stumped as an eclectic female voice touting poetic lines of 'Uyire' ensues. Anirudh then continues to play puppet with listeners as he sways to and fro, high and low, with intermittent treatments of hardcore rock and tantalizing soul music.

'Iraiva' is many-sided with emotions of serenity, love, prayer, hope and anger. The background music is never intruding but only adds to the vivacity of the song. Anirudh's proves himself extraordinary again with distinctive experimentation.

'Iraiva' is set to create sensation and find an eternal spot in your love/rock playlist.

Verdict: A song that will surprise, scintillate and get you addicted.
